I wrote an article about my experience in switching from PC to Mac, that the
good old twosome at OK-Cancel let me publish on their site. All in good fun!

Boy can I relate. I have an iBook G4 and resting my wrists on the wrist rest
(;-) causes the mouse to move in weird and wonderful ways. I also have an
uncanny ability of clicking on the in between menu and window areas that
clears the screen and reveals the desktop.

Does anyone have a Visio replacement other than Omni Graffle? I keep hoping
something will show up on Source Forge...

Openoffice?
It may be a gazillion years light less sophidticated and honed but ...
What's the people saying?

I write it all in HTML using Amaya (the free W3c's browser that lets
you write too). It's supposed to have SVG grahpics, but it's still too
buggy.
This would be ideal for me: to use the same tool to write text and
draw state transition diagrams and have easily linkable documents and
all what's good abour HTML like for example displaying it in both
Dave´s computers (the Windows and the Mac).
I'm pressing Amaya developers to push the SVG part a bit more, with
not so much success :-(

It depends why you are using Visio.

If you are using Visio for wireframes and mockups, I recommend taking a
look at Canvas from ACD Systems (available for the Mac and for Windows).
However, Canvas doesn't come with a built in set of Windows GUI
component objects, so you'll need to create your own.

ACD Systems actually bought Deneba (who orginally created Canvas) and
still uses the old Deneba URL: www.deneba.com

I have my own set of components, but it's wireframe level, not mockup
level (not that it would be all that hard to do mockup level).

If you are using Visio for diagramming and flow charting, Canvas can do
that too, but the tools are fairly primitive comparatively. In that
case, Omnigraffe is probably your best bet.
